I just got a gorgeous selection of prints from alteredmommy too! They're all wonderful - I love the way you use colour! I actually can't pick a favourite (maybe the dark leafy one...?) beautiful card too Smiley

Thank you so much! I can't wait to sew these into something special Cheesy

Those are good tips to try for next time!

I received an inspiring package from edelc Smiley

She sent four beautiful fabric pieces. The blue one is my favourite, but they are all such great textures, and I'm looking forward to using them in some sewing projects soon. She also sent a lovely extra packet of papers - thanks so much Edel!!

I've received a wonderful package from calluna - handknit socks!! What a treat  Grin

The colours are perfect for me, and I love the way calluna did a cool gradient stripe effect on them!

And, a gorgeous bonus handmade art journal/sketchbook, with lots of handprinted (gelli?) pages - so cool! Thank you so much! Smiley

I received an amazing little box stuffed full of silk goodness from Mistress Jennie today!!

She crocheted this absolutely gorgeous shawl in my favourite colour. It even has a beaded edge! Cheesy so spoilt!! I am going to wear this so much!   Kiss

But as if that wasn't enough, she also made two little silk baskets, in the most vivid colours! Luscious!!

I love the subtle vertical stripe effect, using two different yarns - so clever! It really takes them to the next level. I can't crochet at all, but Jennie inspired me to have a go at learning granny squares last week  Grin

The baskets are just perfect. My study/art/writing room has a bright blue feature wall, and shelves full of books and brushes and bits. See how great they look on it?

Bonus: you can also admire the brilliant storage pods the wonderful Wulf made for me in the Fat Quarter Swap a few months ago! I think they all look fabulous together! Cheesy

Thank you SO much Jennie, I LOVE what you made, and it was so nice getting to know you a bit too!!

Look at the wonderful things Wulf made for me!! The prints are so cool - I love the modern-arty vibe - and everything is going to be super-useful too Smiley

There's a fantastic hangable storage pod/bin, intricate smaller vessels for little crafty things, a luggage tag (awesome!), pieced coaster, and bookmark. I can't believe you got so many things out of two FQs! And, some map fabric and dalek fabric - perfect!! Cheesy

Here's a closer look at the more intricate things, the little triangle vessel even has matching beads. Everything is so neatly sewn too, they feel lovely and crisp. I'm going to enjoy using them all!

Thank you so much for a wonderful package of goodies!!

And (please forgive the double post) - I did take up the challenge to work on a positive piece for myself. I had a blank brown paper journal that had been waiting to become something for a while. I decided to make it a positive affirmations journal - inspired by all you lovely people and your amazing creativity Cheesy

This is the first page, and I trust it won't be the last.

Thank you again CLM for a marvellous swap!

Oh, the embroidery is just wonderful!!

I was also spoiled with a super-happy package from Smmarrt! Cheesy  Colouring pages with perfect quotes, a wonderfully arty, handmade journal (haha great minds think alike), and a marvellous prayer flag, all wrapped in the happiest paper!!

The fabric of the prayer flag has a delicious texture, and buttons Smiley and the inside of the journal is full of inspiring papers.

Thank you so much!! these will brighten up my creative space even more - I love being surrounded by the creativity of my craftster buddies, and using handmade things every day Cheesy

Wow, the pink is so happy Cheesy even though I'm not usually into pink - gorgeous work!

I got an AMAZING package from onyxnox!! Look at all this aqua and indigo!! and treats - there's even tea that's blue  Shocked which I can't wait to try!!

Here's a close up of the monogrammed (painted/screenprinted?) napkins and the fabulous leather cuff! (you can see how everything matches my wedding ring Cheesy )

It's hard to pick favourites, but I think these handmade sketchbooks/journals are just the best!! lovely thick paper, and gorgeous textured covers, with a perfect quote inside one. And even better, the pages are fastened in with elastic, so refillable! I love these so much Cheesy

AND two wonderful pockety bags from recycled denim - these go so well with my small collection of project bags - my craft room shelves are looking super creative and organised! AND awesome socks! with space cats!!

Thank you so much Onyxnox!! this is such a gorgeous happy package, which has brightened up a stressful time so much!

Everything is just amazing!! So much stitchy goodness Smiley

I received a wonderful, uplifting package from kartiana yesterday Cheesy. She made me two gorgeous hangable pieces, along with a wonderful haul of stickers, and a sweet card. She hid the letters of my name in the card and the "Make art every day" piece - such a cool idea. It's hanging on my easel right now.

My favourite is this gorgeous watercolour hexagon piece - such lovely textures! It's hanging between two jars of paintbrushes and it looks really fab - thank you kartiana!

My turn to show off!! I just got two international parcels - it's like Christmas here!

fishstix43 sent me a wonderful project bag - it's roomy and pockety and sturdy enough to stand up - I'm going to love using this! Plus she chose a beautiful selection of Prismacolors for me to create with, look ...

The photo doesn't do the bag justice, it's really beautifully put together, and the perfect colours for me. Thank you so much, everything is much appreciated and will be well used!! Grin

And, I got the sweetest appliqu cushion cover from anna.wahnsinn, along with some chocolate goodness ...

Thank you!! Such a cute panda face - I love it!! Cheesy
